How did our Universe come into existence? Was there a time before the Big Bang? Do our laws of physics inexorably lead to the existence of us? When will the last day on Earth be? When will the stars die and the sky go dark? What will be left at the very end of the everything? Is the end of the Universe really even the end?In this fascinating scientific documentary, Life of a Universe, inspired by the Southern Sky as British Professor Brian Cox travels Australia, he reveals our very latest understanding... [see more] about how the Universe began and how it will end. Join Professor Cox as he visits some historic sites related to space and science to examine Aboriginal creation stories and visits Tidbinbill's telescopes outside Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex. Professor Cox seeks to explain the current thinking on our universe. In answering these questions, this film focuses on the work of eminent scientists and the unique clues that can only be revealed by exploring the Southern Sky. This film also features added input from global cosmological luminaries such as Stephen Hawking, Brian Greene and Neil Degrasse Tyson. For cosmologists such as Cox it's not a result of imagination - but it's a model to which observation, experiments, and mathematics lead us to.
